TIFF Cinematheque Presents Night Moves: The Films of Arthur Penn
March 24 - April 6 at TIFF Bell Lightbox
“I’m known mainly for making movies about people shooting and cutting each other up,” remarked Arthur Penn of his own body of work. In Hollywood, Penn emerged as the American filmmaker most directly influenced by the New Wave, with the existential paranoia of Mickey One and the form-shattering jolt of Bonnie and Clyde (a movie famously passed on by both Godard and Truffaut). On the occasion of his recent passing, we salute this giant of cinema—and longtime friend of the Film Society—with a retrospective.
